If you try by running gates followed by running it 1,2,3...... And you mess up then you stop skiing and the entire rhythm and timing does not get recognized. We have a mini course inside of our standard course. So my students run the mini and start adding standard buoys from the finish to the start.
Thanks for posting this. My wife used to run full passes, but after a broken ankle several years ago she hasn't run a full pass since....gate, 1, 2, miss 3, or gate, 1, 2, 3, and miss 4...either way the rest of the pass is wasted. I'm going to try this with her this year.
